Associate Professor of Film and American Studies at the University of Zaragoza. My current research interests include film genre theory and contemporary cinema, more specifically the crime film, contemporary social theory and the global/local. At the moment I am working towards a book about transnational crime drama. I have also published on Stanley Kubrick, authorship, Clint Eastwood, and melodrama.
